    Womens' Day 1 RGSP Picks thread

    Bonjour and bienvenue to Day 1 of the Women’s Roland Garros Suicide Pool – 2010 edition.

    Important Rule: A Sunday pick is mandatory. You will need to make 3 first round picks to survive to round 2: Sunday, Monday AND Tuesday!

    You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the women’s event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you may never use her again. There will be a “picks and results thread” posted after the day 1 thread is closed so you can check the choices you have already made.

    It is very important you follow the schedule of play for the day posted below. Since the first round is spread over three days, only a portion of the draw plays each day, and today there is a mixture of matches from both halves of the women's draw.

    Post your Day 1 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in Paris, rain or shine. For day 1, that’s Sunday, May 23, 11:00 AM in PARIS. That is Sunday 2:00 AM Pacific Time. Please do not be late, as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. This thread will be locked at the deadline, so please don't wait until the last minute or you may find it locked when you hit "post."

    If you change your mind after you make your pick, and before the deadline, please make a second post advising us of your change - PLEASE DO NOT make your change in your original post, as we often go through the posts before closing to begin the task of updating the picks and results, and we might miss a change if you edit your original pick.

    Since the object of the game is to pick a player that you are sure is going to win on that day, should your player withdraw, he obviously cannot win his match. You do not get a substitute (lucky loser) - you have chosen a player, not a spot in the draw. You might want to scout your player and make sure there is not a known injury or illness issue.

    Best of luck and thanks for joining us.

    Day 1 consists of only the following 16 matches from bottom half of the Women's draw:

    [6] KUZNETSOVA, Svetlana RUS vs CIRSTEA, Sorana ROU
    VESNINA, Elena RUS vs PETKOVIC, Andrea GER

    Wish I could count on her sticking around a while, but her results indicate otherwise, making her a good first rounder.
